Bring Your Business To Atlantic City, NJ!

Now may be the best time ever to do business in Atlantic City. Here's why...

You may have heard recently about the casino closures, property tax hikes, and other issues effecting Atlantic City.  In my opinion I don’t see new casino’s coming to Atlantic City to solve the cities woes.  I do see a great opportunity for businesses to move to Atlantic City or start in Atlantic City.  There are excellent incentives to bring businesses and development to the city.

You may have heard about the call center that launched in Atlantic City.  The company was approved for $33,000,000 in tax credits!  The company plans to hire over 300 people and will recieve $3.27 million per year in tax credits over a 10-year period through the Grow New Jersey Assistance Program.  Through this program businesses that are creating or retaining jobs in New Jersey may be eligible for tax credits ranging from $500 to $5,000 per job, per year; with bonus credits ranging from $250 to $3,000 per job, per year.enclave-ac

The other fantastic incentive program is the Economic Redevelopment and Growth (ERG) Program.  This also run by the NJ Economic Development Authority.  For residential projects: Tax credit of up to 20% of total project cost with 10% bonus possible if the project constructs and reserves at least 10% of the residential units for moderate income housing.  And for commercial projects: Incentive grant reimbursement of up to 20% of total project cost.  Because Atlantic City is located in one of the five Garden State Growth Zones there is up to an additional 20% in incentives.  Imagine building a brand new building or development and getting up to 40% of the cost back in tax incentives!

So besides the incentives there are a few other reasons to bring your business to Atlantic City.  We have an ample work force of good hard working people.  You’ll have no problem hiring great talent in Atlantic City.  Also the location is fantastic.  We have fabulous beaches, world class restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and recreation.  We’re also one hour from Philadelphia and two hours from New York City.

This is clearly the best time to bring your business to Atlantic City.  If you or someone you know is considering starting or expanding their business please contact me.  I’d love to connect them with the resources they need to take advantage of the opportunities right now in Atlantic City commercial real estate.

Best wishes,

Tax Appeal Time – Help With Your Atlantic County, NJ Tax Appeals.


I’ve been getting calls from clients regarding appealing their Atlantic County, NJ property tax valuations.  In an effort to help I’d like to include some resources to help with this process.

The deadline to appeal taxes is April 1st.  All of the information and forms required can be found here:  Here is a link to the form you’ll need to download and complete:

You’ll see on form A-1 that you will need to provide 5 comparable sales to justify your appeal.  Comparable sales used as evidence in 2015 should have occurred between October 1, 2013 and October 1, 2014.  This is where many people get stuck coming up with this information.

If you need help completing the form or obtaining comparable properties I am available to help.

For a fee of $50.00 I will locate the 5 best comparables and email them to you with full details including lot and block number and addresses.  (This service is free to current and past clients)

If you need additional help completing form A-1 I can also help for an additional $75.00 fee.

Note:  The county charges a separate filing fee ranging from $5.00 to $150.00 based on the assessed valuation. The filing fee schedule is as follows:

If the assessment appealed is:
Less than $150,000 $5.00
$150,000 or more, but less than $500,000 $25.00
$500,000 or more, but less than $1,000,000 $100.00
